Through the SSP, over 600 lawyers across Canada are trained and ready to offer their services free of charge to help Canadians sponsor refugees. This unprecedented, nation-wide mobilization has been supported by the Canadian Association of Refugee Lawyers, the Canadian Bar Association, and our local partners across Canada.

Depending on where you live, you can connect with a lawyer in one of two ways. If you live in Ottawa, Toronto, Kingston, Windsor, Calgary, Edmonton, Red Deer, Vancouver, Victoria, Halifax, or New Brunswick, there is a program set up in your city to help you match with a lawyer. See instructions on getting involved on our Sponsorship page.

If you’re outside those cities, you can look for a lawyer near you on the list below and contact them directly.

If you live in Quebec, please note that the sponsorship process is different and the SSP unfortunately cannot offer you support. Some useful organizations to consult for information and support include Action Réfugiés Montréal and the TCRI.
